African Swine Flu on the agenda
Quoting the Solomon Star newspaper – 11 February 2020
“The Solomon Islands Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SICCI), as the peak body representing private sector in the country, is supportive of measures taken by the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAL) to contain the spread of the African swine flu into Solomon Islands.
“MAL highlighted the measures they have taken against the African swine flu to members of the business community during an information session on Monday 10th February in Honiara, hosted by SICCI so that businesses can understand how it relates to their operations.
“The African swine fever is an infectious viral disease that can affect domestic and feral pigs of all ages. There is 80-100% mortality rate. There is no treatment or vaccine available as yet.”
